We don't even know where to begin with Robot Unicorn Attack. To be honest, this may be one of the weirdest games we've ever played. Keep your robotic unicorn afloat in a world filled with rainbows, fairies and dolphins, all to the happiest song Erasure has ever written. It's cheese poured on top of weird poured on top of crazy and it all just seems to work. Robot Unicorn Attack's sequel can't even top this weirdness. Must be because of the Erasure song.
It's about time Sonic entered the world of endless runners. Who better to join the genre than the guy who sort of trademarked running like a bat out of hell? Sonic may not re-invent the genre, but the colorful graphics, blazing speed and tight controls Sonic Ball our blue hedgehog straight onto our list. A few upgrades to the game by Sega, and who knows? Sonic could find himself speeding up to the top of the 10 Best Endless Running Games list sooner rather than later.
Here's a title that's more of a flier than a runner. The goal in Tiny Wings is to get to as many islands as you can before the sun sets and night catches up to your bird. Simple one touch controls make the game easy to play but difficult to master. Developer Andreas Illiger is always updating and adding more levels, retina display, more birds to choose from and a cool new racing feature called Flight School. Tiny Birds is a great addition to your endless runner collection.
It's the end of the world! And only a spikey haired guy with no memory can help save the day. UFO invaders, zombies, meteors and everything else that can kill you stand in your way from saving the human race. This unique endless runner has some cool power-ups to keep the game fresh and fun to play. Another unique thing about it? The high scores reset every 24 hours, creating a mad dash for players to always stay on top. Can you save the world everyday?
A lot of endless runners are slow and methodical and speed up over time. Not bit.trip.run. This game is nuts from the get go with fantastic level design, an amazing soundtrack and precise controls. It's one of the most well rounded endless runners out there and should be added to your endless runner collection immediately!
This entry in our list of the 10 Best iOS Endless Running Games takes the genre and spins it upside down, sideways, and throws some loops in for good measure.

What makes an endless runner great? When it's so addicting that you can't stop playing it to see if you can make it just a little bit farther than before. Punch Quest has had this effect on all of us here at Arcade Sushi, and the surprise App Store hit has not only won us over, it's forced us to place it as the #1 entry in our list of the 10 Best iOS Endless Running Games, knocking Jetpack Joyride off of its long standing reign.
